Regenerative procedures can reverse some of the damage caused by periodontal disease and other dental problems by regenerating lost bone and tissue. Regenerative procedures are used during periodontal surgery. Once the area of bone loss is adequately accessed, the bacterial deposits that have caused the bone loss must be meticulously cleaned off the root surfaces of the teeth. Then the proper regenerative procedure is chosen to successfully re-grow the lost bone. Depending on the situation, membranes, bone grafts or tissue-stimulating proteins can be used to encourage your body’s natural ability to regenerate bone and tissue. There are many regenerative procedure options available to help you enhance support for your teeth and restore your bone to a healthy level.
